...Title

General Plan Text Amendment and Related Changes: Transportation Analysis Policy to Comply with Senate Bill 743.

...Recommendations

The City is updating its transportation analysis policy and related changes to conform with State law (SB 743) and to further the goals and policies of the General Plan by removing the vehicular Level of Service (LOS) metric from transportation analysis under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and replacing it with a Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) metric.

(a) Adopt a resolution approving the General Plan Text Amendment to reflect the new City Council Transportation Analysis Policy 5-1.

(b) Adopt a resolution approving a new City Council Policy 5-1 entitled “Transportation Analysis Policy” using VMT, rather than LOS, as the CEQA transportation metric, and amending City Council Policy 5-3 entitled “Transportation Impact Policy” providing a transition from LOS to VMT.

(c) Adopt a resolution designating Infill Opportunity Zones (IOZs) pursuant to SB 743 to align the City’s participation in the regional Congestion Management Program with the new City Council Transportation Analysis Policy 5-1.

CEQA: Pursuant to Section 21080(b)(1), the proposed adoption of the General Plan Text Amendment, adoption of new a City Council Transportation Analysis Policy 5-1, amendment to the existing City Council Transportation Impact Policy 5-3, and adoption of Infill Opportunity Zones, are ministerial actions and pursuant to Guidelines 15268(a), ministerial actions are exempt from the requirements of CEQA.
